III.      Approval of minutes from last meeting

Rick Stahl indicated that Cindy Wickizer took the minutes on his behalf at the last meeting.  Cindy reported to Rick that she has been unable to locate these minutes.  Therefore, there are no minutes to be approved.  The membership did not object.

IV.      Treasurer’s Report

Rick Stahl reported that after paying the expenses from the 4/3/04 show there was a balance in the checking account of $19.17  This balance did not include the $400 in receipts from the 4/3/04 show and the approximate $100 still to be submitted to the Treasurer from Soni Jager for the 3/04 show.


He also reported that after several audits of the checking account, the bank statement reflects $20 more than the book balance. 


He then indicated he had the necessary paperwork to change the authorized signers for the checking account once the new treasurer is elected.  Until this paperwork is finalized, Rick will continue to maintain the checking account.


V.      Old business

Nothing to report at this time.
